This is a bug report for perl from ambrus@math.bme.hu,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.12.3.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]


In lib/Config.pod (which documents all configuration variables), the
entry for config_argc refers to the config variable "config_argc1" which
does not exist: the correct variable to refer to would be "config_arg1".
Let me quote it.


=item C<config_argc>

>From F<Options.U>:

This variable contains the number of command-line arguments
passed to Configure, as reported by the shell in the $# variable.
The individual arguments are stored as variables config_argc1,
config_argc2, etc.


This documentation is generated, but I don't understand how, so I can't
submit a patch.  Sorry.  The bug is present in at least perl 5.13.9.


[Please do not change anything below this line]
